Commercial System on Chincoteague Island, Virginia

Wednesday, May 20, 2015

Problem:  An existing pizza restaurant on Chincoteauge Island, Virginia was looking for the ideal wastewater product to help them repair their existing failed wastewater system.  The existing site, located along the main tourist corridor, had limited space so sizing and performance were a major factor in choosing a repair product for their 585 gpd site.

Solution:  Space was limited and a code complying conventional gravel system would not fit on the site.  Tom Neilson, a Professional Engineer from Onancock, Virginia chose the Virginia GMP 135.A approved Mantis M5 system from Eljen Corporation due to its increased surface area, multi-stage filtering process, and equivalency sizing credit.  All this, couple with competitive pricing, made it the perfect choice for the job.

Result:  The system design was approved by the Accomack County Health Department and installed by Boggs Water & Sewage, Inc. of Melfa, Virginia.  The installation was quick and the repair successful, allowing the popular pizza restaurant to get back up and running before the busy tourist season began.
